The way you can get that information is by calling the NI-DAQ function named Init_DA_Brds for each PXI slot of your chassis. Each function call will return a code number which will correspond to a particular PXI board. You can get the complete list of codes and boards at the NI-DAQ help for the Init_DA_Brds function. As you will know beforehand the slot number, by calling that function you will match the returned code with your slot number and figure out what board is hooked up on each slot.
Hope this helps.
